    My woodstove is in the basement with a floor grate over it. Is it possible to somehow use this so it would aim the airflow up? Thanks

    It would not work in that manner no.

    Does the Ecofan work effectively with a pellet stove?
    1 Answer
    The fan can be effective, but it depends on the surface temperatures achieved by your stove. I highly recommend using a magnetic thermometer or infrared thermometer to check the surface temperature of the stove while it is operating.

    Would using two Caframo Ecofans on a single wood burning stove increase heat efficiency?
    1 Answer
    While they wouldn't have any effect on the efficiency of the stove itself, 2 Ecofans would indeed aid in heat distribution as opposed to only one fan atop the stove.

    Will these fans work on a fireplace insert?
    1 Answer
    As long as your insert has at least a 3 1/2 inch ledge protruding from the brick facing, they will indeed work. I use one on my insert and it works quite well to circulate the heated air in the room.

    How are these stove fans installed?
    1 Answer
    The fan will simply stand upon the top of your wood or gas stove. Care should be taken to ensure that enough clearance is maintained between the fan blades and any vent piping. Once the stove surpasses the starting temperature for the fan, the blades will begin to turn.

    Is the three bladed Ecofan more efficient or more quiet than the two bladed Ecofan?
    1 Answer
    The three-bladed Ecofan is only suitable for use on gas stoves, whereas the two other models (both with two blades), are the only options for a wood stove. Thus, the model you need will depend on what kind of stove you have.

    How long should these fans last before they need to be replaced?
    1 Answer
    On average, the fan motors will last approximately 3 years before needing replacement. Your actual experience will vary, based on the average stove temperature and frequency of use. Replacement motors are available and easy to change.

    September 23, 2013
    Are the fans safe? Are the blades not enclosed?
    1 Answer
    While the blades of the fan are not enclosed, they do not spin fast enough to cause injury. In addition to that, their stove top location makes it unlikely that you would have contact with the item during operation.

    How do you oil the Ecofan? Where do you put the oil?
    1 Answer
    First, we recommend that you inspect the motor for debris and dust, and use a can of compressed air to clean out the motor housing. Then, lay the fan on its back and apply a couple of drops of machine oil to the motor shaft, near its penetration to the motor housing.

    from Bay Shore, NY asked:
    December 29, 2012
    Why are some fans for wood stoves and some for gas?
    1 Answer
    Because wood and gas stoves will have much different surface temperatures, different motors are used in each Ecofan to optimize performance. The gas stove fans are designed to start operating at a lower temperature and are not designed to be exposed to the high temperatures generated by a wood stove. The wood stove fans start operating at a higher temperature and would not move much air if used with a gas stove.

    If you are still on the fence about adding a gas or wood stove fan to your fireplace, ask yourself whether you are satisfied with the area of your home that is warmed by your hearth. Even with a heat efficient, modern stove that keeps the warmth from escaping up the chimney, you have probably realized that only the area immediately surrounding your hearth is receiving warmth from your fire. That is because static, unmoving air does not conduct heat uniformly or efficiently since warm air tends to rise to the ceiling, making room for cooler air to take its place. If you really want your fireplace to have a positive effect on the overall temperature of your home, you need to try one of our Caframo Ecofans! There really is no easier upgrade that you can make to your fireplace. These wood stove non-electric Ecofans are extremely easy to set up, and once they are in place, you don??t even have to worry about turning them on! They are activated when the sensors feel the heat from your fireplace, and as the fire dies down or is turned off, they will slow or stop automatically according to the heat output of your fireplace. Though the Ecofan does not heat large areas instantaneously, it does provide a constant flow of warm air that will last as long as the fire is burning.
